I liked that the tour was on time and informative. The waters we dove were cold, after several minutes, even with a 3mm wetsuit. Clearest water I've ever dove and there were an ample amount of fish to see. The guide for our group was informative, funny and helpful.

We are relatively new to diving and choose to dive rainbow river while the rest of my family snorkeled. As far as the dive site, I really liked it and it was way different than ocean scuba that I trained in! After reading the reviews I called the dive shop and got a quote and when I arrived it was...

Travelled with Captain Phil on a trip earlier today and it was amazing! Considering the low season for manatees I didn't really know what to expect but surely enough Phil got us into the water with a manatee in crystal clear water within short. We had a very nice snorkel experience with a fairly small group of people. After finishing... More

We went snorkelling with the manatees last years as part of a Thomson excursion. The experience was fantastic, it was lovely to be in the animals natural environment with people who truly respect them, a completely opposite end of the spectrum to tacky places like SeaWorld. Wetsuit hire was an extra $10, the water was cold so it was in... More

This was a spur of the moment decision for us. I've ALWAYS wanted to swim with the manatees. We found a groupon offer for American Pro Diving, called a couple of days ahead if time and booked the trip. Everything was exactly as specified on the phone & online. The only thing was that we made a small drive to... More

Took my 4 and 7 year old on this tour. Captain Phil was a nice guy and made sure everyone got a chance to touch and see the manatees while still being respectful of the animals and other tours. It was a good time- would go again.

Manatees are fabolous but 7 years ago ampro took us up the river where lots of manatees live year around. I believe they told us several hundred during summer and thousand migrate in in the winter. Now they just take you to the bay with only 3 dozens hard to find manetees. When you find one (in 2907 we found... More

Great experience and value. Everyone we encountered was helpful, kind and enthusiastic. Michael Glenmullen was our instructor and did an amazing job, very patient and thorough. Always felt safe and comfortable with what we were doing. Amazing first dive experience!
